Serious Injury Claims – What You Should Consider

If you or your loved one have suffered a serious injury (also sometimes referred to as a “catastrophic injury”), not only would that have been devastating, but it will also be life changing. From an accident at work, to a road traffic collision, there is no way of planning ahead for a serious injury. Whilst compensation cannot change what has happened, it can be vital in helping you get on with your life and in helping you obtain the care and assistance, and rehabilitation that you may require.

These serious injuries will have an immediate and enduring effect on you. We understand the short, and long term impact a major injury can have on an individual and their family, and therefore, we work with specialists to establish quickly how the injury has affected you and use our experience and expertise to win serious injury claims on behalf of our clients.

Our expertise and understanding of the complex legal system means that we can identify very early on in a claim what is going to be involved in a serious injury compensation claim. Importantly, we also understand and the significance that bringing a claim has for the injured party and their family.

Therefore, not only do we consider the monetary compensation but also other factors such as short to long term physical, social and financial impact. Our objective is to build a case for compensation that considers the long-term picture, and other factors such as potential home adaptations, private medical care, immediate care needs, and rehabilitation support.


There are other important factors we keep in mind such as:

A personal approach: We focus on giving a personal approach from the outset. We will visit you at the hospital, home or even at a rehabilitation centre. We prefer seeing our clients face to face which we appreciate enables a relationship to be built, especially when you are going through a traumatic time.

The claims process: We assess your claim from the outset to identify who is responsible for your accident and we will ensure all the relevant evidence is gathered in support of your claim. When handling a serious injury claim, we always work hard to ensure a dedicated and experienced case manager is appointed. This case manager will assess your rehabilitation needs up to the conclusion of your legal claim, and beyond where necessary.

Expertise: We have acted successfully to secure compensation involving (but are not limited) to:

  • Serious neurological conditions leaving injured clients with disability, paralysis;
  • Amputations;
  • Loss of limbs;
  • Severe head or brain injuries;
  • Spinal cord injury.

Interim payments: We aim to secure an initial interim payment as soon as possible after the start of your claim, and then at intervals throughout the claim before the full and final settlement payment is made. We know and appreciate these payments help to alleviate the financial burden especially when you are unable to work, or in circumstances where private treatment may be necessary.

When making a serious injury claim, it is important that you find a solicitor with extensive experience and knowledge of the complex process involved in this type of claim. This includes a sound understanding of the Rehabilitation Code, the importance of assessing the current, and potential future needs, and dealing with other experts when running a successful claim.
